Underground Storage Tank Release Detection: How To Remain Compliant Under The EPA's Latest Update

Webinar: ID# 1023256
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
In 2015, the EPA updated the Underground Storage Tank (UST) regulations which included revisions to release detection equipment. UST systems that store petroleum or other hazardous substances must comply with the new regulations by October 2018. Over 9,000 releases from UST systems occur annually.

Gasoline, petroleum, and other hazardous substances are commonly stored in UST systems. A small leak, if unnoticed, can turn into an environmental and public health disaster. These regulated substances can contaminate soil and pollute groundwater resources.

The new regulations require UST owners and operators to have a method or combination of methods to detect releases from their UST systems.

To stay in compliance these tank systems must not only be installed, but also monitored for proper function. Any release of a regulated substance or unusual operating condition must be reported to the implementing agency within 24 hours or sooner depending on the implementing agency. Operators that report spills quickly can prevent releases from traveling offsite and contaminating a greater area.

Join us for an in-depth webinar with David Piercey, vice president of JD2 Environmental, and discover practical strategies for preventing UST system releases and staying in compliance with the EPA’s most recent regulatory update.

  • How to detect, prevent and respond to a UST release
  • How to determine which release detection method to use
  • How to react to common release detection problems
  • The roles and reporting responsibilities when a release occurs
  • And more!
